Ramona Rizzo revealed she and two other other cast members will not appear in season 4 of Mob Wives

Rizzo reportedly told 4UMF.com her childhood friend Karen Gravano and occasional guest Carla Facciolo will also not return to VH1's hit reality show. She made the reveal during New York Fashion Week. When asked about season 4, she said she will not return and cited issues over the show's salary.

"I like to get paid, and they don't want to pay. That's one of the issues, yeah," she told the website.

The mother-of-four said she learned the show's producers spread lies among the cast members to get them to fight with another in order to increase ratings.

"I felt like I was lied to behind the scenes. I was told a lot of lies, and then when me and the girls got together, it wasn't true," she said. "Yeah, and that's one of the issues when we got together, that's what we discovered."

Rizzo is the granddaughter of the infamous Benjamin Ruggiero, aka Lefty Guns, who was portrayed by Al Pacino in the movie Donnie Brasco. She grew up with Gravano and Renee Graziano in Staten Island.

The divorced New York native is currently engaged to Jospeh Sclafani, who was sentenced to 15 years in prison in August for cocaine trafficking. New York Daily News reported on Aug. 29 that he is currently requesting a 48-hour leave from the New York detention where he is currently housed so he could visit his gravely ill father who has liver cancer. New York prosecutors are against the idea because they fear he will have a shotgun wedding with Rizzo during his leave, according to the report.

"Recent episodes center around whether [Sclafani] will be released from custody for a short period of time so that he can attend his wedding," the documents filed in federal court by Assistant U.S. attorneys read, according to the report. "[Rizzo] emphasizes that the wedding plans need to be flexible because if the defendant were to be released from custody, he would be given only 48 hours notice of his release ... as a result she and the defendant are planning a 'shotgun' wedding that needs to come together within a short period of time," the prosecution argues. 

Sclafani's attorney denied the claim.
